LightHeaded  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v70100-1.0.0-2016-10-26
by: Cladhaire [More]

The last date of comment parsing is now part of the addon's filename.

Includes over 166,198 comments for more than 15,560 quests


LightHeaded is a very simple addon that displays quest information and comments from http://www.wowhead.com in game, eliminating the need to Alt-Tab when you get stuck on quest. This addon was inspired by qcomments and wowhead_quests, which both serve a similar purpose. Data is only loaded when you first request it, so you can be sure you're not using more memory than you need to.

I HIGHLY suggest using this addon with TomTom, another one of my addons (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...32-TomTom.html ). This allows you to simply click any coordinate in LightHeaded to add it to your map as a waypoint.

The following slash commands are valid:
  • /lh attach - Attaches the frame to the quest log
  • /lh detach - Detaches the frame, allows you to resize and move it
  • /lh sound - Toggles the open/close sound
  • /lh page - Toggles showing all comments on one page, or with multiple pages
  • /lh bgalpha <0.0-1.0> - Changes the alpha of the LH window background textures, so you can see the world.
  • /lh debug - Enables or disabled debug messages when loading quest databases
  • /lh config - Opens the LightHeaded configuration window
  • /lh autodetails - Toggle automatic opening of the Lightheaded window when clicking a quest in the objective tracker

LightHeaded now includes the English descriptions and introductory text for most of the quests in the game. This is disabled by default, but can be enabled for those players that are not playing in their native locale.

LightHeaded supports sending coordinates to TomTom, MapNotes, Cartographer2 and Cartographer3.

IMPORTANT: Addon authors that wish to use this API and data should
include the wowhead logo in the frame that displays this information.
They are kind enough to let me continue parsing their database, and we
owe them at least that much. Thank you.

Thanks for using my addons!

Update for new parsing script

Thanks to lunarwtr we're able to parse again, since I didn't have time
to fix the previous parser. This required some changes to the addon, but
this should get things back up and working.

Author: Jim Whitehead <[email protected]>

Fix LH waypoint set integration

- We now are able to properly reverse WowHead mapFileIds to the in-game
areaIds, so waypoints should be set in the correct zone.
- We don't know how to set a waypoint in an instanced zone, so we just
put those in the current zone
- Integration with MapNotes, Cartographer and friends always set in the
current zone.

That shoudln't happen.. make sure you downloaded the most recent version of the mod, from the "Download" button at the top of the page.

Same problem here. No error messages, just "no comments found".

You are probably using Minimalist, if so...
/minimalist and make sure you uncheck the part about showing quest levels.
That fixed it for me.

Thanks for the tip. I was not using Minimalist, but another mod that showed quest levels. Disabling that mod did indeed fix the problem.

Database

If one were so inclined to retreive their own database from http://www.wowhead.com, how would one do so?

Text parsing. Out of respect for wowhead, I won't be sharing my scripts to do it. I don't want to be responsible for increased load on their servers.

Respected and understood.. If you can, make this database available?

You can contact me via email, and we can discuss what you're interested in doing.

This is really great! I use nQL, but hate the nQL detail window (can't hover for info over rewards). So, I disabled the nQL detail window and use default with double-wide. Having this along with the default quest detail windows is really great. Thanks for this. Please keep it updated!

I may be alone in this, but I don't always want to see the comments when I click on a quest in my quest log to read the description. Sometimes I want to "Go it alone".

What I'd love to see is the comments open on alt-click (for instance), or an option to allow that behavior vice the current setup where I get the comments even if I just wanted to read the quest. Small nit, I know.

If I did this, you'd have to opt-out of LightHeaded, but I could certainly look towards changing it in a future release.
